Caroline’s Installation on 6 11 18: a memorable occasion for our church family, for Caroline’s family and the town.

The ‘Holy Mowers’ meet at All Saints every Thursday morning from 10 to 12.30 to mow, prune, cut, rake, edge, get rid of mole hills and strim. Anyone who has a love for our ancient church is welcome. You do a job which suits your physical ability and go when you’ve had enough.  We have coffee/tea at about 11.00. We’ve been doing it for two years now and the churchyard is looking immeasurably better so this year we’re entering the Best-Kept Churchyard competition. Scroll down and click on the link to our maintenance plan. Our work is cut out: it’s the 2nd largest churchyard in England – the biggest is in Newcastle. Our Team Leader –  aka Holiest Mower – is Sheila Crow who has won the ‘Pride of Tendring’ Award for her unsung services to the community. Her tel no is 01206 30 65 74  Below are some pictures – but we don’t sit around drinking coffee all the time!
